Returning to University
As you come to the end of your placement, you will begin your transition to your final year and start your preparations for graduate employment or further study. You should use the learning from your placement and agreed action points to identify and plan how you are going to make the most of your final year.
By now you might have noticed some subtle (and not-so-subtle) changes to your behaviours, your work ethic and your awareness of how you can link your course content to your placement experience and vice versa, through reflection.
Using the synoptic portfolio in final year
As you make the finishing touches to your synoptic portfolio and prepare to submit the completed document, think about goals you might want to set for yourself to continue your learning and reflections on your experience. This will be incredibly useful to you when writing future job applications.
